With so many new platforms on the SEO market, including social media, video hosting spaces and more, it’s understandable that traditional business blogs might easily get overlooked.

Why Is Blog Writing Still Important in 2020?

With the rise of video marketing, podcasts and other mediums, it’s easy to think that SEO in 2020 doesn’t need written blog content. While many users enjoy alternative content, written blogs still achieve views, with long-form articles earning significantly more traffic over their lifetime than shorter articles. As such, you need to be producing regular, long-form content that showcases your business expertise and encourages readers to check out the rest of your website.

What Benefits Does Blog Content Offer?

Writing a blog is about more than just sharing your ideas, thoughts and opinions; it’s also a unique tool that you can use for a variety of purposes.The benefits of a business blog include:

  • Increases website traffic
  • Relevant blog content boosts your website’s SEO
  • The content can act as part of your sales funnel
  • You can easily update customers on new developments in your business and market
  • Blog content can answer customer questions or explain new processes to them, saving you and your team time and effort
  • Regular, insightful articles highlight your expertise and mark your company out as a thought-leader in your industry

All of these benefits require regular, relevant blog content that readers want to check out and engage with, which means that you need to invest time and effort into creating top-quality content.
